The Closet of Sir Kenelm Digby Knight Opened By Kenelm Digby

Kenelm Digby owed a good deal to Circum stances, but he owed most of all to his own rich nature. His family was ancient and honourable. Tiltons originally, they took their later name in Henry iii's time, on the acquisition of some pro perty in Lincolnshire, though in Warwickshire and Rutland most of them were settled. Three Lancastrian Digby brothers fell at Towton, seven on Bosworth Field. To his grandfather, Sir Everard the philosopher, he was mentally very much akin, much more so than to his father, another of the many Sir Everards, and the most notorious one. Save for his handsome personand the memory of a fervent devotion to the Catholic faith, which was to work strongly in him after he came to mature years, he owed little or nothing to that most unhappy young man, surely the foolish est youth who ever blundered out of the ways of private Virtue into conspiracy and crime. Kenelm, his elder son, born July I I, I 603, was barely three years old when his father, the most guileless and the most obstinate of the Gunpowder Plotters, died on the scaffold. The main part of the family wealth.
